December Gratitude Sale!

Hi again!

I just saw a friend/designer doing this on her blog...
and I thought....
I am soooo grateful to you all!  
I so want to give back, especially at this time of year.
I am going to be offering $1.00 PDF designs...
...a new one every few days - or maybe every day if time allows...
through my website - .
Keep checking back to see changes.

We all spend so much time during the holidays taking care of others.
This is my way of saying "Take care of yourself too!"
Except for a few of you lucky folks,
we have a loooong winter to come. 
And if we are blessed, we will have time for stitching!

So, today... I will be offering:
My design # 47 "Be Thankful" for just $1.00.

Enjoy, my friends!

First Snow!

Hello My Friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I had 12 people in my house (ranging in ages from 2 to 83) for three days! 
I used EVERY dish in the house, not just once, not twice, but 3 separate times!
BUT - we had such fantastic fun!

Two days later - I was reluctantly thrust back into reality 
when I went in for minor dental surgery. 
Eeeew. Ick.
You may remember a post way back about my teeth not obeying. 
Actually they are being out-right disrespectful!
Well... over the last few years... my teeth & I have had a "falling out" (no pun intended! : ) 
so - this is my way of apologizing for being MIA lately.

But, I am back up and running...
(actually, I avoid running whenever possible as I usually have scissors in my hand) 
and I am working on some new designs!

I did want to share a picture of my front yard yesterday. 
We had our First Snow on December First! 
Very fitting. 
Our first snow is usually melting within hours - but this one is still here today! 

Hope you all are warm, cozy & happy!
